Read full description of the books The Well: David's Story:Loved the way this book ended but I have to say that the story caught me off guard. Here's why. I knew it was based back in the early 1900s, but I didn't know it was going to be written the way it was. This author stayed true to the times of racism/prejudice in the way she wrote it. An inappropriate word was used throughout the entire story-because that was the language that was common during that time period. THAT was the reason why it caught me off guard and was hard to read.
The story itself taught a great lesson-when you do bad things to people sometimes you get more than you bargained for in the end. So I liked the way it ended-REALLY liked it.
I'm not sure how my 5th or 6th graders would take to this book. I'll try it out on someone and see. :)
Read information about the authorMildred DeLois Taylor is an African-American writer known for her works exploring the struggle faced by African-American families in the Deep South.
Taylor was born in Jackson, Mississippi, but lived there only a short amount of time, then moved to Toledo, Ohio, where she spent most of her childhood. She now lives in Colorado with her daughter.
Many of her works are based on stories of her family that she heard while growing up. She has stated that these anecdotes became very clear in her mind, and in fact, once she realized that adults talked about the past, "I began to visualize all the family who had once known the land, and I felt as if I knew them, too ..." Taylor has talked about how much history was in the stories; some stories took place during times of slavery and some post-slavery.
Taylor's most famous book is Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. In 1977, the book won the Newbery Medal. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry is the middle book, chronologically, in the Logans series that also includes titles such as The Land, Song of the Trees, Let the Circle Be Unbroken, and The Road to Memphis. Her collective contributions to children's literature resulted in her being awarded the inaugural NSK Neustadt Prize for Children's Literature in 2003.
